    So your idea is to avoid letting Paypal know the origin of your money? I don't think I understand your question entirely.

    If I am right, you are looking for Plimus, 2Checkout and Paygear for receiving payments.

    Can I use lets say 2checkout to receive payments without them knowing the source of money? And if I m not mistaken customers will need to.sign up to pay? I was looking for something as simple as paypals system?

    You sound like you want to sell something illegal, maybe roids? If you are not happy with bank transfers, your only option is setting up offshore merchant bank account and payment gateway. But this is expensive.
    I can tell you for sure, dont use paypal for what you want to do. It is just a matter of time your account will get frozen.

    ahah not roids :) but if I don't put any references to my business on my Paypal and just receive "direct payments" will it still be frozen? Because that way Paypal pretty much won't know the source of money right? Thank you for your input either way!

    They have so many rules they may freeze your account for any reason.

    Say they freeze the account and tell you to provide proof of the origin of cash as "routine check"....they can do anything really. Best you can do is have a legitimate business where cash comes in from.

    It's never safe with PayPal. Your account can be limited at any time for any reason. Just be prepared and don't keep large amount of money in it :)
